RAISE MORE HOGS
The Northwest is fortunately
situated in that it has the cli
mate and soil to raise crops that
will produce an enormous amount
of hogs and we believe that the
hog is the backbone of this sec
tion. We realize the drop that will
take place In most all commodi
ties that are soaring skyward at
the present time, but being fa
vored by nature as the North
west is, if we study the condi
tion of affairs, the man who is
raising hogs is bound to make no
If it should be the destiny of
the United States to enter the
European war, many people be
lieve it will not last until the end
of the coming summer. The con

Particularly from the nations
now at war, pork will be in
great demand. Early in the war
Germany slaughtered her hogs
in order that she would not have
to feed the grain needed for her
armies. The shortage of pork in
the other countries is nearly as
bad and they will have to de
pend upon America for the next
few years, until their herds can
be rebuilt. Portland Livestock

themselves into two groups known as
"Gideon'a Band" and "Busy Bee."
For six weeks they had competed with
each other for new members and

had won. ' So on Saturday last the

in the basement of the Baptist church.
